My advent calendar. My friend Jen spun and knit these beautiful minature mittens for me. They have such meaning for me since she passed away this summer. Each day I put up one mitten, counting down to the 25th. This year I found these beautiful gold light garlands and I have incorporated them with the mittens. Every night I hang a mitten and turn on the lights.
So beautiful. And yes, those are miniature hexagon ornaments.
I have been keeping busy making small things.
I am making these cute origami pockets. They are such fin to make.
I have also pulled out my scraps and relaxed by doing foundation piecing:
They are called “wild and goosey” blocks by Bonnie Hunter. Just pulling out scraps. I decided to use the same white in all of the blocks. I need a lot of blocks because it takes 4 miniature blocks for one block and then they will be sashed! The little houses are me miniature houses resurrected! For each 4 miniature “wild and goosy” blocks, I make one house. I want 365 of these houses.
Of course a quilter with a cat is never alone:
Until next time. Happy quilting!
